THE WONDER OF GOD
How often we stand in
slack-jawed wonder as we see the con-trails
of God’s love in our lives.
The overwhelming display
of His power and might in lightning and thunderstorm
brings out fearful respect.
How our hearts melt,
as God releases the gentle rejuvenating rain of
summer that removes all things.
How energetic we become,
when the healing Sunshine spreads it bright rays
into our world and life is just right.
How comparable to our spiritual lives
which should infuse our mind and actions and exude
to others whose lives we touch.
Our lives should be lived in slack-jawed wonder
that Jesus could ever love us. We are so unlovely
covered in sin. For us to be lovely He came and died,
and shed His blood to cover our sins. What Great Love.
This overwhelming display of might and power in
lightning and storm should remind us that He is in control of
nature and the creator of all things and we are His creation and
should fearfully respect Who He is and what He can do in our lives.
There are times we need refreshing. God brings gentle
rain and soft winds to bring growth and strength in our spiritual
lives. We experience the rain of trials and temptations and feel the breeze
of adversity and in our resistance we experience spiritual and mental growth.
Then from heaven the rays of the Son beams into our lives and embraces
us with a love all encompassing. We can’t find the height nor depth, nor width
nor length of it. The words “well done” opens up the well springs of our hearts
and our eyes are brimmed with tears of compassion. Then this life is worth it all.
